I would really REALLY love Rome to be in the game but what would be the point of keeping it a secret for this long? I would think that the only people that would "get" the surprise would be people like us that are following this game very closely. Ubi will have missed almost 6 months of "Rome adverting" to the other 98% of those people that may or may no buy AC2. Why do this?

Since the inclusion of Rome seems to be one of the BIGGEST questions about the game at this point. I'll try to keep a running list of info here that deals with hints or direct questions about the inclusion of the city and its relation to the game and time period.

2: As was pointed out, the name of Dev Diary #3 is "All roads lead to...." The answer is Rome of course. Click here for a short lesson on the etymology of this ancient saying. (http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/all_roads_lead_to_Rome)

You people ask too many questions. Just go with the flow; you'll know it all eventually, and it'll be all the more satisfying when you get it by way of the game itself.

Anything is possible, but I don't see this happening.

The most probable reason that he answered with a cryptic "we'll see" is that he didn't want to generate negative press with a headline of "No Rome in AC2".

But it's so much more fun to speculate and to try to find clues. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Ubi is very VERY good at marketing but I think we can crack this thing sooner rather than later. I wouldn't put it past them to have dropped hints way before this that I missed so if anyone knows of any I'll add them to the list.

09-18-2009, 01:12 PM
But why do you want to "crack" it? Surely it's the game itself that matters; I already know enough about the game for it to be a BUY BUY BUY sorta deal, pure Wall Street style, but things like this are really kinda trivial to me. Maybe not to you, but to me they're non-issues when I know this much about the game already.

Speculating and asking questions where you want definitive answers are completely different things. Speculation allows for an answer wherein there is a degree of uncertainty, and that I enjoy. Asking direct questions eliminates that, turning it into a black and white thing: "Either there's Rome or not, and I'm not resting until I get an answer, goddangit!"

Well my intent is to do the former (assuming they've left other clues similar to the "All roads lead to...." thing. My more intense interest stems from Rome being one of my favorite cities on Earth and also where I spent part of my honeymoon. God I love that place!! Lastly it seems hard to imagine that you'd make an open-world game that centers on Italy and not include it's most famous city.

There is some quite unique and amzing architecture in Rome that would make for greak free running for sure. The Colleseum is one and there are many many churches as well as the ruins of the forum that would also be interesting to explore.

Rome is a hill town so visually it would be STUNNING!!

I was gonna say pretty much this. On one hand, those magazines are horrible in terms of getting their facts straight, (one that I read didn't even have the city that the demo took place in right, they said it was florence when it was venice). On the other hand, the lighting in that screenshot does look like its more of a blue color, which doesn't match florence or venice, so it probably is a pic of a different location.

I'm still skeptical until we get something official.

I really hope its accurate. It seems like they would make a bigger deal out of announcing a new city. Maybe the magazine leaked the info too soon. Hopefully we'll get some big announcements soon.

I'm wondering how much larger Assassin's Creed 2 is in space... Because we got Three big cities ... Venice is from size more than 5 districts... And we have Tuscany landscape with little cities ... Looks like a lot of climbing fun (especially because it are well known cities that I visited all ^^ )

Well, if the districts are as big as the AC I districs, it's gonna be pretty big, really with Tuscany, but if I were you I wouldn't count to much on Rome, if it's not really included, you'll get only really sad if it's not in http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Well, Florence has 4 districts, Venice 5, not sure how many Rome has, but over the 9 districts in AC2 with just Venice and Florence alone, and add in the Tuscany countryside, with the mini cities in Tuscany aswell as the Wetlands, the game looks insanly huge.

i mentioned this on another thread after mentioning the Vatican's seal earlier, but i will put it here as well, seeing as the Vatican's seal is on the guard, and that Ezio's armour suggests that it's at a later stage in the game, will the Vatican be a climbing puzzle that we have heard about? as i cant see you assassinating the pope, and the fact the Vatican is an independant country surrounded by a huge wall, infiltration would be nigh on impossible, any thoughts?

I already posted this screen in the Official screen topic... I think it's maybe an Art of Rome (In the far background you see the new Vatican (as we know it today) being built up and the closest building is Castel Sant' Angelo ... It's only a guess but if you compare the art from the closest building to real pictures of Castel Sant' Angelo, you can recognise it... ) Oh by the way; This is the piece we can't see of Rome in the IN-Game screen. So don't say this isn't Rome because the Colosseum isn't on it, because it's situated in the other direction http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif ... But I really think this is some ART of Rome.

All arguments that confirm Rome in the game(till now):
- The Colosseum is in the in-game screen
- Castel Sant'Angelo is in the in-game screen and art screen
- The seal of the Vatican is on the Guard's Chest (compare the in-game screen to the seal that you find on google ...)
- In this post you'll find art of Rome, which confirms it again...(Source is IGN.com, so it's trustworthy)

There are multiple screens and things from AC1 that show a lot of changes between them and the finale game.

just because Ubi release a few pictures of a untested and unfinished game it doesn't mean everything we see now will be in the game. they may have started on rome for example then found out they had way too many problems with the city that couldn't be rectified so they chose to drop it.

as I have said before a lot of the pictures of rome are concept art (not screen grabs) the odd screen grab they have shown have been on a wall (possible the city is just a back drop) as for the vatican symbol on the guard it is really simple to change a texture on a guard to add a symbol of choice (see AC1 modified skins)

I'm not pointing these facts out to be awkward I'm pointing these facts out as until Ubi come out and say "rome is in the game" it could be cut or just used as a back drop. as for the point most of these images are coming from nothing will be finalised yet meaning they could show Ezio fighting with a hand bag (firms have used stranger 3D model place holders before)

Another couple of observations about the above picture:

1: This is pretty much obviously supposed to be Rome.

2: Is it just me or does it look like The Colosseum is one-sided?

3: Where is The Forum? It should most definately be visible halfway between the end of the blood spatter in the foreground and The Colosseum in the background.

4: The same goes for Palatine Hill which should be dominating a large portion of the right-hand side of the picture.

5: Everything else is just about dead on except that in reality The Colosseum should actually be about twice as far away from where Ezio is standing.

Then again, I'm just glad Rome is in the game.

Yes, The Forum.... The center of the Roman Empire and home to some of its most famous ruins.

I'm not sure what earthquake you're talking about.

And while you are correct about some parts of The Colosseum being used for the construction of other structures around Rome, The Colosseum is not currently one-sided.

Huh, go figure.

Well the fact remains that The Colosseum is still generally intact (not counting the upper decks) and except for half of the outer wall (south east to north west sides) the footprint of the structure is exactly the same as it was when it was in use as a stadium. the picture in the screen shot above seems to show it as a one-sided wall.

I'd LOVE to see a better in-game picture to get a better idea of how well they've re-created it!!

ya, someone posted that before, it won't happen though, the devs probably saw the reaction that happened to it and if it was even on the story board was probably shot off and burned.

EDIT: but think about it, what did Alexander do that was so horrible? the Pope who started the Crusades{his name eludes me} rallied everyone together to go fight the Crusades because one Christian city got harrased by Muslims, it's like he's Bush except in the Dark ages and could command almost EVERYONE to go fight

I dont think you can kill one off the popes, it has to fit in with the hostoric happenings in that time, if there was a pope killed in that time period it is possible that you can kill the pope in AC2, but isn't a pope killed...than it is unlikely that you can kill him http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

It would be a shame to make a game set during Renaissance Italy and not include its capital. Rome is definitely going to be a part of the game! The city was also subject to a lot of suspicious activity at that time which is in line with the atmosphere/storyline of our game. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

from whats been going around, it appears that there is only a section of the game (near the end) where you are able to go to Rome. Its supposed to be quite linear...

I've seen a video with the mission in Rome. What happens if you try to reach the city instead of follow the path?
